Back from Beijing

Just got back from Beijing, and man, what a trip! Despite the bitter cold (2 hats, 2 sets of gloves, 2 jackets and still freezing) we were fortunate to get nothing but sunshine and crystal clear skies to take in the amazing scenery. From the Great Wall to the Forbidden City to the Summer Palace to the Temple of Heaven, Beijing felt like a living museum tucked within the borders of a massive city; a place simultaneously careening towards the future yet deeply rooted in ancient culture. Now that I’ve had time to go through all my pictures – and boy did I take a lot – the next few posts will try to recap some of the cool sights and sounds from Beijing.
